A. Whenever administratively practicable and whenever the District's financial resources allow, the following pupil/teacher ratios shall be maintained:
1. K/EK 30:1 Individual classroom basis
2. 1-3 30:1 Individual classroom basis
or K-1 30:1 Individual classroom basis
3. 4-5 30:1 Individual classroom basis
4. 6-8 27:1 Individual school basis
The above individual classroom basis ratios will include special day class students who are mainstreamed into regular classes for activities other than P.E. or periodic experiences in art, music, or drama. Special education teachers will not be counted in the student/teacher ratio. A supplemental mainstream report will be prepared on about the second Friday of each month, or more frequently if requested by the Superintendent.
5. Special education classes shall be maintained at sizes which are consistent with appropriate special education regional guidelines and all legal procedures related to placements of such students or mainstreaming of such students will be followed.
6. If an individual SDC Class reaches fifteen (15) students, the site principal shall call a meeting with the impacted teacher, an LGTA representative, and the Director of Student Services to discuss possible remedies.
B. Teachers will be expected to make placement recommendations to the principal each spring
leading to the development of class rosters for the fall which are based upon full and cooperative participation by all teachers. Additionally, teachers will have input regarding the composition of combination classes. Administrators will, insofar as possible, organize combinations with no less than 1/4 of the total class in any one (1) grade level.
During the school year, teachers and principals will maintain ongoing communication on student needs, teacher strengths, and class composition. When new students enter schools during the course of the school year, principals will make all attempts to place such students on the basis of an assessment of the new student and an assessment of the composition of existing classes in which the new student might be placed. The principal will discuss the placement of new students with those teachers who receive such students.
When the above ratios are exceeded, the school, with District Office participation, will encourage parents to enroll new students at nearby schools in the District which have lower enrollments in the affected grade level.
C. The Principal Advisory Committee and the LGTA professional relations representative at each site shall receive the weekly enrollment report for the District. When this group determines that online without prescription is a problem because the above ratios have been exceeded, they will work collaboratively to identify the specific cause of the online without prescription increase and work together to resolve the problem.
Within five (5) days of this discussion at a Principal’s Advisory Committee meeting, the site administrator will provide the committee with a written analysis of the online without prescription situation and the action that may be taken to resolve the situation.
D. If a mutually agreeable settlement and solution cannot be reached at the school site, the teacher may request that the Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources or the Superintendent be involved in further discussions aimed at resolution. The results of such involvement between school site personnel and a District-level administrator will be placed in writing if so requested by teacher(s).
E. Upon request, a copy of any routinely prepared enrollment reports will be provided to the Association President.
